Hot Wheels: 50th Anniversary Special

TX Time: 19h20
Genre: Motoring, Reality

Hot Wheels and Bobcat Studios partner up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most disruptive toys in the world, Hot Wheels.

The Big Bang Theory

TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Comedy

Sitcom centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon's equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali.

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. Wizards in the laboratory, but socially inept outside of it, none of their genius helps them interact with people, especially women.

All this begins to change when a beautiful, free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door, who aims to teach them a thing or two about life.
